    Windows 8 keyboard input method


    During the installation stages of windows 8, I choose English language and US as keyboard input method. But after few weeks later, I bought a new British style keyboard and in control panel I replaced US method with English (United Kingdom). While I'm logged into the operating system the input method works correctly, but after every shutdown on a next user log in when I'm writing my password it's still English US method that not corespondent with the keys on the keyboard. This not happening if I put the system in sleep mode.

    Hi masinovozac, welcome to Windows EightForums!

    In PC Settings check to see if UK input is set to primary.

    But on a welcome screen, where are the log in fields it is different situation. On a first place is English (United states) and Macedonian is second. On welcome screen I want to replace English (US) -> English (UK).

    Thanks.
